Does Your 2018 Mini Cooper Clubman Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 2018 Mini Cooper Clubman, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your Cooper Clubman jolts, sways to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 2018 Mini Cooper Clubman, bring it in for suspension and steering service. We'll pinpoint the problem.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, coil springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis, axle bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we’ll explain what your car needs and how much it’ll cost to get it done. We won't begin any work without your permission. If parts of your Mini Cooper Clubman suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Mini Cooper Clubman Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Your 2018 Mini Cooper Clubman’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Cooper Clubman’s shocks and struts since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be indicators of worn Mini Cooper Clubman shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2018 Mini Cooper Clubman’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician.

Questions About 2018 Mini Cooper Clubman Steering & Suspension

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Mini's suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also alert you to the need for new tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Mini Cooper Clubman? Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that the tires connect with the road how Mini intended.
  • When should I have my Mini Cooper Clubman power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your Cooper Clubman’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll top it off per Mini's guidelines to help your suspension perform smoothly.
  • What can cause my Mini Cooper Clubman to have a bouncy ride? Damaged struts or shocks can't dampen road bumps properly, causing your vehicle to feel like a trampoline after each dip or bump.
  • What can cause the front end of my Cooper Clubman to dip forward when I apply the brakes? The forward momentum and weight transfer to the front wheels during braking can cause your Cooper Clubman's front end to dip forward. A damaged or faulty suspension system may fail to distribute the weight and force effectively, causing the front end to dip even more.
  • How do I know if I have worn Mini Cooper Clubman shocks? Worn shock absorbers can’t absorb road bumps well, making your Cooper Clubman feel like it’s leaning or swaying when you turn. You may also experience more shaking, rocking, or bouncing than usual as your Cooper Clubman travels over minor bumps.
